“What’s something no one can take away from you?” It’s a question that makes you think- what really can never be taken away by anyone. The world is a constantly fluctuating and freefalling place. There is so much unknown that it’s legitimately impossible to know of all the things that you don’t know.
My husband, my stepsons, my mother, my sisters, my brothers, my friends… people can all be taken from you so quickly and without any kind of warning. The recent passing of my friend Quinton is evidence of that. He was so young, so intelligent, so much fun. No one ever expected him to be gone so soon.
“Things” are taken even more easily. Mislaid items, broken valuables, stolen pieces, ruined clothes, lost toys… all of these things are daily occurrences. Things are not meant to be lasting, especially in this age of instant gratification and desire for all things new and young.
What is lasting?
What can you count on to be there day after day, year after year, for your entire lifetime?
My first thought was my education, my thoughts, my musings. While that’s somewhat true, I didn’t feel like this is the whole answer. It felt like there was something greater that I was missing. Anything and I mean anything can be whisked away at the blink of an eye, with the exception of one thing.
The answer is not a what, it’s a who. The Supreme Being, in whatever form(s) you believe in, is the lasting piece of the human puzzle. There is not a person out there that can take away your faith, your mind, your worship. As a Christian, I believe in the Trinity- God the father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I also respect the beliefs of those who believe in the forms of the Goddess, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, the Great Spirit, and other forms of The Creator.
Treasure your faith. Cultivate your beliefs.
